Happy Fourth Of July - Lego Big Apple



Happy Fourth of July! I love New York City, "The Big Apple"! This past week in Rockefeller Center they opened a Lego Store. It was amazing for 3 Days the Lego Engineers were to build a "Big Apple" out of Lego's. By Thursday they completed their task. They had people line up children of all ages to build these "blocks" so the Lego Engineers could build away. Inside the store was a Lego Dragon that looped around the whole store a replica of Rockefeller Center and walls of colored Lego's. Everything was "Lego" and children were buzzing with excitement. The Apple goes away on Tuesday, but the store stays. I hope you Love the "Big Apple" as much as I do! Was fun to build a block and watch the growth of this apple. Enjoy this special day with family and friends and be safe! xoxo

Hi Grace, that looks like so much fun. I bet the kids love it there. I also think you found yourself a big slice of the big apple. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
